If you read my post from earlier today you'll know that I was very perplexed how a rat could possibly end up on the barb of a barbed wire fence.
I had debated with myself about posting the picture because it's kind of a gross picture. Now I'm glad I did because I learned something new today from Leilani Lee over at Ozark Oddments.
She posted the following comment:
"This is typical of what a shrike will do (it's a bird -- Google it) It catches small animals and reptiles and hangs it on barbed wire. Great shot! I am glad you posted this."
As soon as I read her comment I googled to find a picture of a shrike. Then I called AD in, showed him the picture of the bird and Leilani's explanation. We're going to be doing some bird watching and see if we can spot a shrike or two.
I just love learning new stuff! Don't you?
